After publishing my first icon commission June 10, the success of creating these small yet detailed works of art has become part of my journey. With only two months and a few weeks in the business I have managed to upload 12 icons, with only five more to go in addition to a reservation. Even with the one month delay I’ve gone through because of my summer vacation and time on Gaia, I still have a very good feeling that my artwork is appreciated!
As I continue to create this type of artwork I’ve had a friend or two ask me on how the process goes. To contribute your suggestions please comment on this journal. If you do not have an account, comment below.

Hey there WordPress friends! To continue posting on this blog once more I have decided to start a Donation Pool on my deviantART profile to start collecting points for a 12 month membership. My current event is to sell Black Rock Shooter icons for 80 points, or $1, to be used as avatars. Not only will customers be able to download a watermark free version of these avatars, they will also receive a sketch of Mato and Yomi, as well as a colored drawing of Nana Gray and Black Rock Shooter as a bonus.
Please note that I do not have a PayPal and it’s only an equivalent to this virtual currency.
On the other hand, even if you’re not buying one of these P2U (Pay to Use) icons, your support is still appeciated and if you have any other characters in mind I might make them into a P2U icon! Remeber that each icon is 80 points ($1).
Have a deviantART account? Well worry no more, I also have one myself! +Watch me!
Hello there WordPress friends!It’s been a while since my last post but here’s my most recent animation. But this time I’m using Photoshop CS3 to animate! Thanks to my dear friend Hxixrox I could get this version of an amazing yet complex program. Please note that this icon is free to use for any Deviantart users but please make sure to properly credit me if you do use it.
This is a quick screen shot I took of the pixel I was working on yesterday for two of my younger cousins. They requested this cute chibi pixel of Toph from Avatar the Last Airbender several weeks ago and I got to upload the WIP on Deviantart before going to bed.
Hello there WordPress friends, a long day has ended up to be a long night here on my side of screen and I would like to make a quick post that will hopefully include a poll later on. As the title says I may possibly make a pixel tutorial for those beginners out there in the pixel making realm because not only have I been working on this style of art recently, I also have a great friend (Riku 4 from Deviantart) who makes them. Her recent livestreams have made we want to go an extra mile in this area of art and it’s really fun once you get the hang of it. Even though there isn’t a million tutorials out there, contributing wouldn’t hurt a bit.
I already brainstormed my ideas while I was watching Riku during her livestream and I just love the way she makes them because of the detail and efforts she puts into each little detail. Her anatomy is really great, in my perspective nothing is out of proportion while the outline makes the final product even more appealing, I was fascinated when Riku told me that she avoids using bases because she knows how the base is suppose to be whenever starting a new pixel. My eyes were staring at the screen the majority of the time during her livestream.
On the other hand I would like to share these two polls with everyone to see if there should be a tutorial or not. Now if the majority answers “Yes”, I want to mention that the tutorial would come in a few months or so. I have to finish my art trades, gifts, requests and a majority of the prizes for Maiden’s Pixel Lottery before I do anything personal.
After working on this adorable little pixel of Elizabeth from Black Butler this morning and for an extra hour or so I finally have part of it done. This contest prize is for Pandaren and is for her use only. The hair was quite difficult because this is the first time I ever do something like this. I tried my best while outlining the character and making sure that the design is close to the original as possible. Pandaren if you would like me to change anything please do so 🙂

Good morning WordPress friends! I hope you’re all enjoying this grand artistic update that has represented my journey in drawing chibis. I can’t believe that I have improved in one year of practicing such a style. I thank God for the year 2012 because I’ve improved not only as an artist but a person. Also a big thanks to everyone who has followed me during my journey, you’re support is really appreciated. I know that I may not be posting as much as before but when I do I’ll make sure to make a great post.
I’ve been pretty active on Deviantart and I have over 10 watchers! I joined 2 weeks ago on my 13th birthday and since then I’ve met amazing artists and friends. I also made my first journal on Saturday, it was quite an exciting experience just to share my goals and thoughts.
This chibi pixel was a requested by one of my youngest cousins named Christopher. I suppose that he really likes the cartoon Adventure Time because he really wanted me to make Fin. I found this chibi pixel to be one of my best pieces of art yet and I really enjoyed doing this character. I don’t get a request from my family members but when I do, the happiness is ready to rush in. Christopher and his brother were coming over for a visit earlier but it was too late when I finished the pixel. Here are a few other pixels I’ve made recently:
These are the characters from 12-12-12: Another World

Hello there everyone! I’m back you guys,tired but ready to post a short update on my life. Lately things have been going well, there are moments that don’t, but let’s say that things get better every now and then. I come home pretty tired on certain days and there are days where I feel free as a bird. I guess I’m working a bit too hard. At times I don’t feel like posting because I have things to do or my procrastination kicks in. I’m still online though searching the online world 🙂
Just yesterday I had my music exam in my string class and I practiced as much as I could on Monday. I had to take breaks in between my homework assignments to get the music piece down since I could not take my instrument home last Friday (it was a different class’s turn to take their instruments home). As a beginner in violin, like many other string players, my class will get graded differently. We all had our strength and weaknesses. Keeping in the laughter was difficult, I really tried not to laugh though. I know that I can be immature at times. Nonetheless, we all gave it our all and that made me happy. Most of the violinists/cello players are 8th graders in my period/class. The results were good even though we all had our mistakes in the music we chose. Our teacher is really supportive and kind.
I actually felt pumped while writing this post and that is the type of pump I would like to feel each day, I haven’t been feeling in the zone lately. I want to say sorry for those who have requested a drawing from me or if I have a pending art trade with anyone. I can say that growing up isn’t easy but worth it. Here is a pixel I made of my character named Daphne that I did many, many days ago on Gimp.
